Those concerned about gentrification might be relieved to hear that the Mission continues to keep it real, if by “real” you mean “crimey.”
According to the SFPD, a pedestrian at 23rd and South Van Ness says they were confronted by two men (described by the police as “Hispanic males”), one armed with a handgun, who “demanded his property” last night.
The victim complied and the suspects fled via vehicle. The victim was unharmed, and the police has yet to make an arrest. The anonymous Mission Station tipline is 552-4558 if you have any info on this crime.
